Hawaiian Punch

HawaiianPunch

A more sophisticated kind of island fever has recently won over the fashion world. Splashy tropical prints in a vibrant color palette–think: zippy tangerines, ocean blues, and punchy pinks–have flooded runways and red carpets alike. Selena Gomez wore the trend in a feminine way, wearing Dolce & Gabbana’s abbreviated Cotton Print Top (part of a two-piece set $1045) with a high-waisted Orange Cotton Stretch Pencil Skirt ($840) from the S/S 13 collection. Meanwhile, Mara Hoffman’s Beaded Flat Top ($216) and Gypsy Skirt ($264), also from S/S 13, featured a more literal interpretation of the Hawaiian trend. This look couldn’t be more perfect for warm spring and summer days. So say aloha to these fun styles!

Equipment Leandra Tropical Print Shirt ($218)
Leave it to Equipment to come up with a fresh and incredibly chic take on the Hawaiian shirt. Style it with crisp white jeans and brown wedge heels.

Ray-Ban Leather Trimmed Sunglasses ($268)
Ray-Ban’s tinted shades are a little bit sweet, thanks to flamingo pink lenses, while leather-trimmed frames give them a touch of edge.

Sandro Tiare Sweatshirt ($235)
Tell everyone where you wish you’d rather be in Sandro’s cute sweater. Pair it with denim cutoffs and gladiator sandals, and you’ll be ready for a day at the beach.

Twisty Parallel Universe Palm Print Skater Skirt ($472)
This girly skirt in a powerhouse print is a shortcut to paradise. Just balance its voluminous shape with a fitted, tucked-in top.

Juicy Couture Small Oval Drop Earrings ($42) in Yellow
Juicy Couture’s brightly colored baubles are the perfect accent for all these colorful pieces, but they’re understated enough for everyday wear too.

Kimchi Blue Palm Print Fold-Over Clutch ($29)
Take island-inspired prints beyond the beach with this bold clutch, which will instantly punch up your going-out ensembles.

Stubbs & Wootton for J.Crew Classic Linen Slippers ($400)
Whether you’re sipping mai-tais poolside or meeting friends for brunch, finish off your look with these playful slippers.

Joe’s Jeans Palm Beach High Water Jeans ($179)
A colorful palm print lends these cropped skinnies a hint of exotic appeal. Team them with a silky blouse and heels for your next GNO–or luau!

XOXO

High Fashion Sneakers

fashion-sneakers

When it comes to truly stylish, comfortable footwear, sneakers are the new ballet flats. Isabel Marant first introduced her now-ubiquitous sneaker wedges in 2010, which quickly became the go-to shoe for fashion’s elite, including top models, and celebrities. Since then, the humble sneaker’s been reinvented in lively colors and new heights, elevating them to must-have status for any cool girl. In fact, a number of trendsetters are wearing sneakers to add a fresh, contemporary flair to their looks.

On Celebrities
WHO: Rihanna
WEAR: Silver Spoon Attire Vintage Cameo Beanie ($68); Trapstar Irongate Stadium Jacket ($143); Rihanna for River Island Grey Thigh Split Sweat Maxi Skirt ($100); Adidas Pro Model Shoes ($78).
WHY: Wear a classic pair of sneakers with a casual maxi skirt for an edgy downtown look.

WHO: Chloe Moretz
WEAR: Zoe Karssen Ooh Chic Sweater ($113); blue jeans; Puma By Mihara MY-66 Sneakers ($120) in Dark Denim.
WHY: Sporty wedge sneakers elevate Moretz’s off-duty sweater and jeans combo.

WHO: Jessica Biel
WEAR: Black scarf; Fendi jacket; JET jeans; leopard-print gloves; Nike Jordan 1 Phat Sneakers ($73).
WHY: Sneakers with bright laces add a playful pop of color to a laid-back look.

WHO: Jessica Alba
WEAR: Opening Ceremony OC Varsity Patch Jacket ($340); white t-shirt; skinny jeans; Isabel Marant Bayley Suede And Leather High-Top Sneakers ($640).
WHY: Athletic-inspired wedge sneakers play up the vibe of Alba’s varsity jacket.

On You
Feeling inspired? Snag a cool pair for yourself with one of these picks. Flat Sneakers For a chic upgrade on the iconic sneaker, look no further than Nike’s Dunk High Skinny Shoes ($85). They’d look perfect with an oversized button-down and cutoffs for a relaxed ensemble. You could also opt for Zara’s Colored Sneakers ($90); offset their sporty feel with a leather mini skirt and graphic shirt. Wedge Sneakers If you don’t want to sacrifice height, invest in a pair of hidden-heel sneakers. Puma’s Sky Wedge Sneakers ($100) make a statement teamed with skinny jeans and a slouchy t-shirt. For sneakers with a flirtatious appeal, try Marc by Marc Jacobs’ Cutout Sneaker Wedges ($328) in Green, which show off a hint of skin. Pair the on-trend mint hue with a floral skirt and knit sweater for a feminine spring look.

XOXO
